Hankey made bankrupt

Given he was forcibly made bankrupt by HMRC, I doubt a few grand for making Lakeside would have helped...

I would have thought that given that he is a two times world champion the exhibition work would be good, I suppose the fall of the pound against the dollar means those plastic bats are so much more expensive now :)

Hope he makes a comeback. always liked Ted.

Hope things start looking up for him one of the most entertaining players to watch and IMO the nicest looking throw. RIP to his Dad.

All I can say bluespark is that I was watching it live. And I said to my wife " the guy is having a stroke. They need to get him off stage asap".

The fact that most reckon he was drunk doesn't take away the fact that I genuinely thought he was going to drop dead on stage.

it was not comfortable viewing at the time. I really thought he was in big trouble as well.

Did you think it was very likely he was lashed up?

Course he was, hence why his management rushed out the "he had a stroke" nonsense to try and whitewash it.

Spin is fun.

Are we really going over this again.
It was said after that he had a CT scan and it was confirmed as a stroke. Now his 'team' could have blatantly lied about that, but we have no reason to doubt it and he simply looked awful, and not just pissed. I'm sure he had a drink as well, but the fact that half his face dropped an inch during the game means its a bit harsh to say everyone lied.

Without re reading the original thread (sure I was posting as it happened) and from memory I am sure I switched between the 2 views. I mean at times he looked smashed out of his face. Also you change view through the discussion.

If he was drunk (and I am still not convinced 100% that he was, though I appreciate he actually may have been) then it was a laugh seeing that performance.

But when he was rubbing his eye and leaning forward you can't tell me he didn't look like he was having a stroke!
